Hello everyone, I have a question about swelling/burning after neck dissection. I have had a bilateral neck dissection and a resection on the left side. The second surgery was June 24, 2011. I have never had problems before, but two weeks ago I was in a small car accident and I have also started lifting weights. I am having some swelling and burning on my left side it doesn't feel like a mass or a lymph node and I am wondering if it is some kind of inflammed scar tissue of if it's lymphedema. Has anyone had this happen?? I go off my meds tomorrow and I go for my scans on Feb. 23rd, but I am kind of concerned about this. Any advice would be great!
